What is Halotherapy?
Halo (salt) therapy is the respiration of micronized dry salt particles for health.
The use of salt as a health remedy has been around since the Greeks, when Hippocrates recommended salt inhalation as a respiratory treatment.
In 1843, Polish physician Felix Boczkowski discovered that men working in the salt mines at Wieliczka suffered fewer respiratory problems than the general population. He published his findings in "About the Breathing of Salt Dust," the first of many studies on the effects of breathing salt air. A therapeutic spa was established within the salt cave.
In the 20th century, Eastern European physicians and engineers learned to simulate the conditions inside salt caves. In modern halotherapy ("halo" is Greek for salt) a generator to blows tiny microparticles of salt into a room. Salt therapy is studied, recognized and used in many European hospitals to treat various respiratory ailments.
